DRC relies heavily on volunteers and community members to make our services available to our community. We know your time is valuable and we are incredibly grateful and humbled by the support we receive. 

If you are interested in volunteering for any of our programs, please fill out the intake application by clicking the button below.

If interested in being a community volunteer for our Ethos and GRO Initiative Diversion Programs, please fill out the online volunteer intake form. We are always in need of new Circle Keepers for our diversion circles. Training is only 4 hours and is offered quarterly. Upon training completion,  all volunteers receive certification as a Circle Keeper for Restorative Circles. DRC requires a simple background check.  Please understand that although there are no criminal convictions that are automatically disqualifying, you may be asked for more information about any prior convictions.

 

We Recognize Your Time Is Valuable!

 

As a Community Member for Diversion, we recognize your time is valuable and we want to show you our appreciation. Upon the close of each case, DRC will pay a stipend for your participation. Prices vary upon your level of training, and stipends are paid monthly. DRC requires volunteers to fill out a W-9 form, and hours are based on what works for your schedule to accommodate your lifestyle. We understand the importance of flexibility. If interested in learning more about how you can be a trained Community Volunteer please email  restorative@drc-mn.org for adult diversion and drcyouth@drc-mn.youth for youth diversion.
